Business

Overview

As has been the case for over one hundred years, clients look to attorneys in our Business Group for their experience in representing both emerging and established businesses in their most important business transactions.

We work to develop long-term relationships with our clients in which our attorneys serve as trusted strategic, as well as legal, advisors. Because we understand the fast paced and ever-changing environment in which today's businesses operate, we are committed to providing business clients with practical, responsive and high-quality legal counseling, in a timely and cost-effective manner. We understand the importance of serving each client's legal needs within the broader context of its overall business objectives. By forming close relationships, providing sensible project staffing and remaining sensitive to client needs, our attorneys are able to focus on the big picture without losing sight of the small details.

We provide advice to our clients on a broad range of business legal issues, from selection of the entity best suited to accomplish the goals of the start-up client, through the expansion strategies of the mature business. Our clients range in size from small, closely held businesses, to multi-national corporations.
